Here is an excellent example of what a complex, nuanced red wine the oft-scorned barbera grape can produce. It's a medium- to full-bodied wine with flavors of black cherry, spices, smoked meats, chocolate and coffee. Tomato sauce isn't going to overwhelm this bad boy. Kudos to California's premier barbera producer. (The single-vineyard version is even more impressive.)Pub Date: 8/11/96

From: Piemonte, Italy Price: $15 Serve with: Pasta dishes, red meats This wine shows the softer side of Barbera, an under-rated red wine that can be hard-edged in youth. It offers complex flavors of black, cherry, spices, smoked meat and vanilla. It's a very smooth red wine that can be drunk with pleasure now. -- Michael Dresser , The Baltimore Sun

Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera found herself in an interesting position last week as she testified before lawmakers about how Maryland's courts will meet a constitutional mandate that defendants get a lawyer when their bail is first set. As a member of the state's highest court, Barbera wrote a forceful dissent to a decision that could dramatically change the way the state treats defendants before trial. But as the state's top judge, Barbera also faces the administrative task of carrying out that ruling.

We'll post more later about Maryland's newest top judge, but here are her first public comments, along with those of Judge Shirley M. Watts, who was nominated to the state's top court and would be the first African-American woman to sit on the panel. Watt's appointment, if confirmed, would also give the seven-member Court of Appeals a female majority for the first time in the more than 200-year history of the court. At an event Wednesday morning in the rotunda of the Maryland State House, Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Judge Mary Ellen Barbera's promotion to chief judge to replace retiring Chief Judge Bell in a role that both oversees the court and is the lead voice for the entire Maryland judiciary system.

1997 Sebastiani Barbera, Dry Creek Valley, Appellation Selection ($18). Barbera is one of the world's most underrated grapes, and this version from Sebastiani shows just how satisfying it can be. This medium-bodied barbera offers intense black cherry and raspberry fruit and nuances of herbs, chocolate and vanilla. While it's ready to drink now, it has the structure and stuffing to develop for five to 10 years. Barbera can be a somewhat rough customer, but this version is unusually smooth and appealing.

1999 Preston of Dry Creek Barbera, Dry Creek Valley ($22). Barbera may not have the cachet of sangiovese or nebbiolo, Italy's most renowned grapes, but it has far outperformed them in California. Preston's version is especially impressive because of its structure, length and intensity. It offers compelling flavors of black cherry, spices, smoked meats and earth, capped with that extra dollop of acidity that distinguishes barbera from other red varietals. This would be wonderful with pasta, stew or grilled red meat.

1998 Ca' del Solo Barbera, Monterey ($15). The underrated barbera grape really shines in this intense, penetrating, medium-bodied version by Ca' del Solo, one of the spinoff labels of Randall Grahm's Bonny Doon Vineyards. The vibrant, earthy flavors and naturally high acidity set this Italian-inspired red wine apart from tamer, more familiar varieties. In other words, you'll know you aren't tasting merlot. Unlike some barberas, it is not fiercely tannin. It would be an excellent match with a truly exceptional homemade pizza.

Maryland achieved several milestones Tuesday as Gov. Martin O'Malley named the first woman to lead what will be the first female majority on the state's top court. The appointments, announced Wednesday in Annapolis, mark a shift in a male-dominated profession and put Maryland among a minority of states with their highest courts led by women. "In every generation we make progress toward the sort of country we want our kids to grow up in," O'Malley said. O'Malley elevated Court of Appeals Judge Mary Ellen Barbera to be chief - the highest-ranking judge in Maryland - and he appointed Court of Special Appeals Judge Shirley M. Watts to take the seat of retiring Chief Judge Robert M. Bell.

Gov. Martin O'Malley yesterday announced appointments of 13 judges, including one to the state's highest court - but did not tap the Senate president's son for a seat on the Anne Arundel County District Court. Thomas V. Miller III's nomination in May for a trial bench vacancy led to the protest resignations of three members of the county's judicial nominating commission. At the time, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, a Prince George's County Democrat, said he worried that political fallout from the protests would likely hurt the chances for his son, a commissioner on the state parole board, to be appointed.

When Joe Barbera, owner of AIDA Bistro and Wine Bar, began using nontrans-fat oils at his Columbia restaurant two years ago, he believed they were a healthier ingredient his customers would appreciate. "The whole objective was to make freshly seasoned entrees and give people the option of less fat," Barbera said. Howard County officials want other restaurant owners to follow Barbera's example. On Monday, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and Howard County Health Officer Dr. Peter L. Beilenson announced a countywide promotion of healthy restaurants - the first phase of a multilayered approach in promoting and educating the county's residents about wellness and prevention activities to improve overall health.

An early-morning blaze yesterday in a quiet White Marsh neighborhood killed a single mother and her two children. Neighbors in the tight-knit community say the boys, ages 8 and 10, were "exceptional" -- well-behaved, friendly kids who and loved to play basketball with the other neighborhood children. Tami Maguire, 36, and her sons, Michael H. Maguire, 10, and Eric S. Maguire, 8, were found dead by firefighters on the second floor of the two-story home, according to fire officials. The investigation into the cause of the blaze, which heavily damaged the rowhouse in the first block of Trailwood Road, is continuing, but officials said the cause does not appear to be criminal.

The popular Columbia restaurant Aida Bistro has just added to its attractions. Gone is the old deli section. In its place, a new and expanded dining area. And where the old dining room was now sits a wine bar with its own small-plates menu. Adhering to the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," owner Joe Barbera says he stuck to the Mediterranean look and color scheme that Aida has had since it opened four years ago: warm yellows with burgundy accents. The dining room now is divided.
